with. >> he's not alone. >> our economy is adding jobs but too many people still can't find full-time employment. >> when president obama took office, 134 million americans were working in nonfarm jobs. today, after massive losses and a slow recovery, we're only 1.2 million jobs better off. and many pay less than those that were lost. recent study by the center for college affordability found almost half of college graduates are now in jobs that do not require four-year degrees. things like janitorial services, taxi driving and retail sales. professor richard vetter at ohio university helped author that study. >> let's say each one of them were making $20,000 a year more in income, which is quite plausible. we are talking about $400 billion a year in lost wages. >>> numbers like that made some economic analysts argue that underemployment may be every bit as damaging to the economy as unemployment. and kellock irvin is caught in the middle of it all. for now he takes freelance jobs as a photographer and part-time work with moving companies. but -- >> that can only support me so lo
. >> so these cuts are not smart. they are not fair. they will hurt our economy. they will add hundreds of thousands of americans to the unemployment roles. this is not an abstraction. people will lose their jobs. >> so there are two solutions. number one, lawmakers find another way to punt, ie delay the cuts for another month. or two come up with a major plan to slash the debt in this country. number two is not going to happen. the punt and pay, i kind of like it. that is not going to happen. number one haze decent chance but number one is a fail too. after all, the feared forced cuts are 2.5% of projected total federal spending. we have an economics professor at nyu and former director of the congressional budget office. at this point, are the cuts inevitable? why is the president still talking about it? >> well, we're ten days away and it seems like the republicans really don't want to do anything to fend off this crisis. you said sequester is an odd word. in a lot of languages, it means kidnap. it's sort of a kidnap situation because the economy is kidnapped, fearing that we might l
economy. that's a really, really tiny slice of the thanksgiving pie, people. there is no need to cut from the vulnerable when it should be easy to cut the amount of money we're talking about from other places. so why is all we hear, the republicans won't do this, the democrats won't do that? danielle altman is an economics professor at ncu. daniel, one thing to acknowledge here, finding $85 billion should be no problem. $85 billion is a really small chunk of the change we actually need to find. so even if you cut from the right places, if you cut the right amount, it would hurt people, and i think we have to be honest about that, but the cuts we're talking about right now impact a lot of people, but brutal and dangerous for the economy? >> well, the thick is this. that it's $85 billion until the end of this year, but then we have these cuts maintained, and enlarged in some cases, going forward over the next seven years. so we've got almost $1 trillion in cuts. so if the sequester goes forward -- >> but over that ten-year period, you have to multiply that times ten too. >> but expectations
, national security or the economy. -- or our economy. but once again the president offered no credible plan that can pass congress -- only more calls for higher taxes. mitch mcconnell had this to say in a statement after the president's speech. quote, today's event at the white house proves once again that more than three months after the november election, president obama still prefers campaign events to commonsense, bipartisan action. if anyone is waiting for any last-minute deals, they better not hold their breath waiting for them to come from mitch mcconnell. here's what he said to reporters a week ago. >> it's pretty clear to me that the sequester is going to go into effect. read my lips. i'm not interested in 11th hour negotiation. >> so republicans are definitely striking back at the president saying he can prevent damage to essential services by cutting from other areas of government. earlier i spoke with the republican senator rand paul of kentucky. senator, the president spoke today about those forced budget cuts. he had some pretty tough words for republicans. let me play a littl
and author of "beyond outrage," what's gone wrong with our economy and how to fix it and ari fleischer, former white house press secretary under george w. bush. all right, let's get some action here. robert, the white house responded to john boehner's challenge of saying, where are the cuts, with a blog post from dan pfeiffer who wrote, "the fact is, the president has a detailed balanced plan with spending cuts, he's willing to make tough choices. now it's time for the speaker to do the same." then he had a link to an 80-page proposal from september, including war savings, it includes tax reform, which of course they want. it doesn't fully lay it out by any stretch of the imagination. so jay carney was asked what specifically will the white house cut and here's what jay carney said. >> it's in the proposals he submitted to the speaker of the house that the speaker walked away from -- >> where does the president prevent sequestration from happening? shouldn't the president take the lead and present that -- >> well, first of all, congress has to act. >> all right. it's frustrating, no ma
